Lyrics: Down Boys

“Down Boys” by The Cars

You were trying to be cute and it didn’t work out

You were trying to be charming and it didn’t come off

You were trying to be clever, a big waste of time

You were trying to get rough but you’re waiting in line

 

You can’t make it with the down boys, they don’t hear a word you say

You can’t make it with the down boys, just stay out of their way

 

You were trying to be sharp but they couldn’t wait

You were trying to be eternal but that didn’t rate

You were trying to be smooth, you’re rough on the edges

You were trying to be hysterical and I still ain’t laughing

 

You can’t make it with the down boys, they don’t hear a word you say

You can’t make it with the down boys, just stay out of their way

 

You were trying to be in but they left you out

You were trying to be in two different worlds

You were trying to be in, oscillation in shame

You were trying to be in but you’re lost in the game

 

You can’t make it with the down boys, they don’t hear a word you say

You can’t make it with the down boys, just stay out of their way

Stay out of the way… out of the way!

 

You can’t make it with the down boys, they don’t hear a word you say

You can’t make it with the down boys, just stay out of their way
